Active Communities

Meeting local need through community-based programmes and activities that bring physical, mental, and social benefits to citizens of Glasgow

Community Sports Hubs

Glasgow’s Community Sport Hub programme aims to change lives through building active communities.

Community Sports Hubs

Wellbeing in the Community

Community Sports Hubs are places where sport clubs, physical activity groups and local organisations and other partners come together to promote getting active. These can be within specific areas of the city, sport facilities or even single organisations delivering multiple opportunities.

Find out more about some of the activities we support in local communities:

Part of Shettleston Community Sport Hub, Jiggly Joggers is a female only organisation who bring together women and girls through affordable and accessible walking and jogging activities. The emphasis on the sessions is supporting to reduce health inequalities in the area, while providing a safe space for participants to give their best, whatever that may be.

Glasgow Life Sport supported Easterhouse Phoenix, part of the Easterhouse Community Sports Hub, to recognise the power they have to change lives through informal and sociable sport and physical activity programmes.

Men @ Phoenix, an initiative delivered by Easterhouse Phoenix
and supported by Glasgow Life Sport was developed to meet
a locally identified need for more male activity in the local
community. A programme of affordable and low-impact physical
activity was created as a hook to engage men to socialise and
build social connections to combat loneliness and isolation.

One example of hubs changing lives through sport is that of Eric, whose involvement with Easterhouse Phoenix created lasting positive change.
